(Video) Genclerbirligi 1-1 Besiktas: Talisca scores 5th goal since joining from Benfica

Besiktas dropped points at Ankara against Genclerbirligi but still went top of the table – although second placed Basaksehir will move into first place with a win if they beat Galatasaray due to having a game in hand.

The Black Eagles got off to a terrible start after a mixup between goalkeeper Fabri and Rhodolfo resulted in Ahmet Gulur being confronted with an empty goal to slot the ball into the back of the net.

Besiktas did find an equaliser from Anderson Talisca who scored a well timed header. The Brazilian star now has five goals in all competitions since joining on loan from Benfica over the summer.

The Istanbul giants take on Napoli next at the Vodafone Arena in the Champions League.
